You know, it's a matter of determination for me. Being a published author is a dream come true and so I want to make it the best I possibly can. Motivation isn't too hard because I have characters talking to me in my head and the only way to get them to shut up is to write their stories! Focus is juts part of who I am; I'm a Virgo and about as perfectionistic as can be, so I'm very self-driven. Inspiration is another matter. It comes and it goes. When it's there, it's a high like no drug could ever give. When it's not, I have to force myself to write anyway and hope some of the words are worth saving. That's the only way a book gets written.

Fearless Females: Sojourner Truth

This is the May column on women in history that I write for the women’s group at my day job. You’ll be hearing more about Sojourner from me in the future.

May is a month full of women’s firsts in sports, women’s suffrage, politics, finance and flight. But we’re going to focus on a woman whose name we all know, but whose story is often reduced to a handful of incidents. Read on to lea

The Body Double by Emily Beyda
"I've detailed below why I am disappointed with this book. It is not a thriller. It is not worthy of being compared to Hitchcock. If you are not interested in knowing who does what, don't read further. You have been warned. All spoilers ahead.

"I really don't know how I feel about this book. The River Pena we meet at the beginning is a jerk, and not someone I care about finding his soulmate at all. The River that exists in about 4/5 of the book is the perfect boyfriend. And while I get that" Read more of this review »

“The ancients say that one note of a song is twenty times more powerful than a single word, and that only in song can truth be clearly perceived, for though words can harbor lies, music cannot abide them.”
Nicole Evelina, Daughter of Destiny

“Whatever the days ahead may hold, remember that you create your own happiness; do whatever it takes to make life worth living.”
Nicole Evelina, The Guinevere's Tale Trilogy

“Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love.

It did not end well.”
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

“Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there's no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.”
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

“I don't know many rules to live by,' he'd said. 'But here's one. It's simple. Don't put anything unnecessary into yourself. No poisons or chemicals, no fumes or smoke or alcohol, no sharp objects, no inessential needles--drug or tattoo--and...no inessential penises either.'

'Inessential penises?' Karou had repeated, delighted with the phrase in spite of her grief. 'Is there any such thing as an essential one?'

'When an essential one comes along, you'll know,' he'd replied.”
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.”
